Even though Iowa's weather does not allow for year-round motorcycling, plenty of motorcyclists are able to enjoy the open road for much of the year. Although motorcycles go just as fast, if not faster, than cars or trucks, they offer few of the protections cars or trucks offer. As a result, when motorcycles are involved in accidents, the resulting injuries can be very severe. These injuries can include the following:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Road rash
If you or a loved one has been in a motorcycle accident, you need a lawyer who is committed to standing up for your rights. Culp, Doran & Genest, P.L.C., is located in Des Moines and represents our clients across a wide range of legal areas. Our four lawyers offer experienced, knowledgeable legal counsel to people who have been injured in motorcycle accidents.
Our first step in your case will be to completely investigate your case. If necessary, we will hire investigators to pore over the accident scene. Our next step will be to make a full accounting of your damages. These calculations may not always be straightforward, particularly when your injuries are severe and prevent you from working for an extended period of time. Our lawyers will enlist experts when necessary to get the full picture of your medical expenses, past and future lost income, and pain and suffering.
Once we have taken this step, we will demand full compensation from those responsible. Although we are usually able to resolve a personal injury claim through a negotiated personal injury claim settlement, it is occasionally necessary to take a case to trial. In either event, you can rest assured knowing our lawyers will have your best interests at heart throughout the legal process.
